Skip to comments.Is Fox News Also a Leftist Propaganda Outlet?
Posted on 08/25/2012 2:09:16 AM PDT by The_Media_never_lie
Last night at approximately 7:30 p.m., Fox New's Carl Cameron was reporting on Mitt Romney's comments that "Nobody has asked to see my birth certificate".
Cameron stated "Romney said Barack Obama's birth certificate is authentic", when what Romney actually said was that he (Romney) believes Obama was born in Hawaii.
Cameron also stated: "Most people think President Obama's birth certificate is legitimate". While this statement may on the surface, be true, it is shameless disinformation. What does it matter what most people think on this issue? Most forensic experts who examine the document have stated there are some obvious flaws in the document that make it likely it was tampered with.
My question to fellow Freepers is this: why is Carl Cameron of Fox News assuming the role of Obama Administration propagandist? Does he feel the pressure from the Administration's FCC? This is blantant disinformation, and it is coming from Fair and Balanced Fox News! Why won't Fox News report the truth on this issue?
I saw that clip and it showed Romney as you said but didn’t Romney also say either he (Obama) was a citizen or that he believed Obama was a citizen? I wasn’t paying 100% attention to the segment.
Depends on what you mean by leftist..
If a Rino is leftist well then YES...
O’Really who claims to be independant is a RINO..
He runs the place.. Shemp Smith is a flaming leftist..
And Greta I think is a democrat.. acting as a RINO..
And “Eddie Munster” Cavuto seems to fairly conservative sometimes..
Maybe Hannity is a conservative.. but he let’s Juan Williams piss on his leg and tell him the rain is warm today.. He couldn’t out argue PeeWee Herman..
There are fairly conservative people on Fox BUT they are not very smart.. most of them..
But thats all there is(Fox).. the only game in town..
All the good arguers are democrats except for Newt..
Carl Cameron is a Democrat who voted for Obama, and it shows.
I quit watching most Fox shows after the Sarah Palin hit piece started by “campaign Carl” the day after the 08 elections. I watch F&F and Cavuto
FNC is the Republican party channel, like it(them) or not.
MSNBC is the Dem party channel
This issue is the least of my concerns. What bothers me is how FNC Republican channel won’t go near(oppose) the advancement of the Gay agenda.
Birthers made themselves look silly claiming a single Federal judge would order Obama to leave the WH, and then following scam artist Trump (and liberal) who made them look like fools. They hurt their own cause. This issue could have been made useful to hurt Obama but was wasted by fools.
You summarized the Fox reporters very well.
Oreilly panders shamelessly to the left. It is as if he is hoping to get that interview with Obama. He has the Southern Poverty Law Center hate mongers/shakedown artists on, and treats them like they are a respectable organization.
Yes, Fox is the only game in town. Hannity’s show was quite good last night covering the disillusioned “Hope and Change” voters.
...”Even companies whose news outlets are often perceived as having a conservative bias have given significantly more money to Mr. Obama. Rupert Murdochs News Corporation, for example, has contributed $58,825 to Mr. Obamas campaign, compared with $2,750 to Mr. Romney.”
Murdoch’s (owns FOXNEWS) contributions say it all. Glen Beck says we will see the extent of the FOXNEWS leftist beliefs when some of today’s popular FOX conservatives leave or retire. Would these leanings explain why no one there is ALLOWED to discuss Obama’s eligibility to be president? The danger America is in cannot even be imagined.
Carl Cameron has always been contrary to conservative values. I just turn him off..I believe he would schmooze Satan to get ahead..That is just my opinion of him.
Carl Cameron is a shameless propagandist who should be on MSNBC.
It is what they say...Fair and Balanced, unlike the others.
As someone who had been FOX deprived for about 8 years, just this year I got a new satellite service, G-Sat.
Prior to G-sat, there was only Dreamsat which carried only
Commie News Network International and British Babble Corp.
The G-sat has FOX and Aljazera, and NO CNN or BBC.
Frankly, I was amazed at how good they are at bashing Obumbo and the Commies.
Yes, they have their token Marxist, Beckel (sp) Colms, and a few others, but all in all, I have been quite impressed.
They obviously know that America is in the lurch. If we do not get rid of Obumbo, America will cease to resemble the country that we grew up in.
Murdochs donations to Obama could very well be a tactical move to quell screams from the Left over how “biased” FNC is towards the right.
To be frank, at this stage of the game Obama’s eligibility is not an issue in his reelection. In fact it is a distraction from the all important message of the economy and jobs.
Nothing will come of the accusations over his eligibility. He will NOT be removed from office because of it even if definitive proof is uncovered and published. The reason I believe this is I don’t think the Congress or the Courts have the courage to do the right thing even when it is so important it be done.
The night of the election Bush v. Gore Cameron stood outside Gore’s place just blubbering and sobbing. Please. How he even kept his job after that is amazing. How he even is allowed to be a journalist after that is amazing.
Fox News have their talking point that Obama’s birth certificate is legit and they all stay on that message. It’s disappointing from a news organization that says they’re “fair and balance”.
The short answer is YES, Fox News has a leftist tendency that is increasing or moving to the left. You only need to know one thing about Fox to conclude that they are biased. Fox News has "blacklisted" Michael Savage. That is all you need to know.
In all probability, President Obama is fully qualified to serve as POTUS because his alleged real father was a citizen of the USA, as was his mother.
Carl Cameron is a turd.
Fox is a shill for the Republican party, but given that the party is infested with liberals, Fox is going to tout the liberal agenda. It was particularly evident when Fox annointed Mitt Romney as the nominee before the first primary was held. Oh, it gave air time to other candidates, but it was all for show. Watch the interviews and the commentary on the other candidates. You can see it was all skewed in favor of the Republican liberals’ favorite candidate.
Roger Ailes calls the shots at FNC. He’s not interested in the birther issue or any other so called speculative issue. That was made plain when he got rid of Glenn Back.
Why he keeps Shepard Smith is a mystery to me.
